The Devil Mountain Run 5K is perfect for speedsters (get ready to set a new PR) as well as those wanting to get out with their families and walk. The flat and fast course starts downtown and returns via one of the most scenic portions of the Iron Horse Trail. Everyone is welcome – including the dog.
For those wanting to get more miles in, the Devil Mountain Run 10K travels through the Greenbrook neighborhood of Danville before returning to Town via the Iron Horse Trail. The (mostly) flat course is perfect for those who want to make the jump from the 5K distance. The slight downhill grade at the finish will give runners a chance to really fly.
